Argonne and Ardennes (1)

We ended up in the Argonne, a green, hilly region that you can consider the foothills of the Ardennes. We choose a route that runs through a valley between 2 hills. We appear to have ended up in World War I territory. The forest of Argonne is known as the terrain where the Americans operated. The hills were in the hands of the Germans… Bizarre to go on the offensive here! We turn right and start the longest climb since the Morvan. It is not steeper than 4% and is therefore easy to maintain. Behind the hill is Varennes-en-Argonne: memorials, museum, American cemetery. But also a Louis XVI tower. From various information boards in the village we deduce that the fleeing Louis and Marie-Antoinette were arrested here.
